http://www.southoxfordfarmersmarket.org.uk/Homesown is our small plant and cut flower business which has regular stalls, at local Oxford Farmers’ Markets, from early Spring . Plants are raised from seed, cuttings and divisions in our garden and small greenhouse. The flowers are grown at a cutting patch nearby: our developing plot.
It is important to us to have a light environmental footprint and to be wildlife friendly in our approach so we use organic methods and peat free compost while steering away from insecticides. Our plants are given tough treatment so we are confident that they will survive and flourish once planted. We lean towards cottage garden, bee friendly plants: knautias, achillea, and salvia have been regulars on our stalls along with foxgloves, cornflowers and scabious. There is intense pleasure in nurturing new plants and doing this for selling to other people has sharpened our minds and encouraged us to experiment.
We also sell vegetable & herb plants – different varieties of mint, squash, courgettes, chard, tomatoes, chillies, lettuce, beans and salad leaves which will all be on offer again this Spring and Summer.
We will be back at South Oxford Farmers & Community Market on February 3rd 2019 with a range of Spring bulbs in pots.
